Disney in June and the #4Parks1Day Challenge

I have been waiting so long to write this post, but kept putting it off. I knew once I wrote the post that I would be headed to Disney World in a very, very short time.

Here I am, a mere day from being back in one of my favorite places in the world. Words can't express how excited I am. For the last few days, I've been freaking Landon out because we'll be watching TV or cleaning or something, and he'll look over at me and I'll have this giant smile on my face. 


As I mentioned a while back, this trip came unexpectedly. Since my sister has to go to the Orlando area for a work conference, she invited me along for company...and to sneak some Disney into our lives. It's basically a cobbled together sisters' trip--no husbands or boyfriends or kids or parents. (We'll be doing the family trip in December). We'll be there from Friday night to Wednesday afternoon, and I plan on packing as much Disney awesomeness into those few days as possible. 

Let's review the major parts of the trip, shall we?


As a veteran of the Disney visit, I've done a lot at the World. But this trip called for a new perspective, a new challenge--something that I hadn't ever done before. 


There will be glow bracelets, sore feet, and churros involved. There will be monorail rides and fireworks and Magic Kingdom popcorn. 

It's going to be epic.

I realize that we are insane for trying this in the middle of June. But try we will. 

Our logic for attempting this crazy plan went something like this: 

Originally, my sister wanted to go to Hollywood Studios because she LOVES Tower of Terror. 

Then, we really wanted to see Wishes to end the day in Magic Kingdom. Then, I decided I had to ride Expedition Everest. At that point, we just threw in the towel, and said, "Let's go big or go home."

So, we will start the day in Hollywood Studios, then saunter over to Animal Kingdom and Epcot before ending the night in Magic Kingdom. 

At minimum, we want to do the following:
  • Tower of Terror
  • Rock 'n' Rollercoaster
  • Lights, Motors, Action
  • Expedition Everest
  • Dinosaur
  • Maelstrom
  • Test Track
  • Seven Dwarves Mine Train
  • Splash Mountain
  • Space Mountain
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Wishes
Is this possible? I don't know, but I'm going to try very hard to make it happen!

Other Magical Happenings at the House of Mouse

Since Amber's going to be at work/ the conference most days until mid-afternoon, I get plenty of alone time. As much as I'm going to miss Britton and Landon, I'm a little excited about being able to do what I want when I want (which basically never happens as a work-at-home parent). When Amber's not with me, I plan on taking full advantage of the resort's pool and a few books (those magical things that I never get to read anymore). 

We'll also try and fit these things in:
  • Tea at the Grand Floridian
  • Dinner at Rainforest Cafe
  • Muffalettas and beignets at the Port Orleans restaurant
  • Shopping at Downtown Disney
  • A sugar overload at Goofy's Candy Company (this one is very important for obvious reasons)
So much food, so little time. 

I will try to blog as much as I have the time and inclination to do while in Disney, but I'm not promising anything. I WILL be posting a TON of stuff next week when I get back about the hotels and stuff, so keep a look out for that. 

You can keep up with me in between my Disney posts and live vicariously through through my time there by following me on:
Instagram, and
I'll be posting as much as I can! :)

Have you ever attempted the #4Parks1Day challenge? What fun things can I do by myself in Disney World?
